    Hi friends,

    I have the following XML:
       <student id="001" name="Jonh"/>
       <student  id="002" name="Mary"/>
       <... .../>

    It's in memory created XML and I need to bind it to a ComboBox.
    To get the students from the XML string I'm using:
      XElement xmlDoc;
      xmlDoc = XElement.Parse(XMLString);
      var myQuery = from p in xmlDoc.Elements("student")
                select p;
      myComboBox.ItemsSource = myQuery;

    In my combo, ValuePath is "ID" and MemberOath is "NAME".
    Well, "You need to create a class..." you may say... but the XML data changes.
    It can be Student ID, Student Name.... Student ID, Student Adress... Teacher ID, Teacher Name.... it's a very dynamic data with and ID and XYZ

    How to bind this kind of XML ?

    Best regards

    Hi Fábio,

    You could either create several forms, containing different comboboxes, bound to the corresponding members, or create a class, that "knows" how to handle the different attribute names of the data XML. Unfortunately RadComboBox cannot automatically guess what's the correct member to bind to.

    Best wishes,
